legian/seminyak, ubud, sanur w/ 2 young kids

Hi all

planning a trip next year & have been checking out plenty of places mentioned on TA. we're heading over next year probably sep/oct for 2-3 weeks. the kids will be 3 & 1 yo by then. looking at spending btn $100 - $150 maybe a bit more to splash out for a few nights. would prefer 2 br places or somewhere that will ably sleep 4 without bunking in all together (like at home - lol). also places where there are other kids & kids facilities to keep the older one amused for a while. any help would be greatly appreciated.

a 1 and 3 yo might not be happy unless the rooms are interconnected. getting two rooms will chop into your accomodation budget also. when we got two rooms we ended up sleeping so it it was one adult and one kid in each room.

the best thing we had were family rooms that had us all in one big room. it takes away some (sorry.. all) of the romance.

larger hotels eg jayakarta at legian have younger kids. at smaller hotels it will be pot luck if there r other young kids that speak english.

many larger hotels have kids clubs.

seeing that u are going for three weeks, u will probably be staying at various locations in bali. when our kids were younger we did that and their main company were themselves.

but when all is said, the balinese love and care for kids and will entertain and amuse them free of charge.

A 2 bedroom apartment at Villa Puri Ayu will only cost about $70-$80/night. If you get in quickly enough you may be able to get the traditional one which is enclosed in it's own compound, so will be safe for the kids to play in their own yard.

It's a small resort so there is no kids club but when we were there in July there were a couple of families with small children staying there.

It's close to everyhting, beach, restaurants, shops etc.

It's in Sanur. Just google the name and the website comes up.

Maybe try splitting your time between a more expensive 2 bedroom apartment and then a week in a family room.

We found that 2 rooms were cheaper in a moderately priced hotel than some of the 2 bedroom apartments. But they can't confirm you will have adjoining rooms...which you would need for kids so young....you'd probably end up sleeping one adult per room anyway, so may as well be all in together.

Good Luck with your choice, we found it hard trying to make a decision as this is our first time to Bali and first time O/S with kids. We've ended up with 2 rooms at the Bumi Ayu (hopefully adjoining) for a week and then a week at The Dynasty in one of the Kids Suites.

Enjoy this site, I have found it wonderful for planning our bali Holiday.

Oh...in regards to Kids Clubs...well we went for the Dynasty as it has a kids club, but I'm really not so sure we will use it, as kids just seem to be drawn to each other and make their own fun. I'm sure if you choose a popular Hotel there will be kids galore to entertain your wee ones.

Cheers T
